Perfect food...

The restaurant sits in very nice neighbourhood, surrounded by important touristic points at Lagoa da Pampulha. It is huge but very simple and with a country style serves typical food from the region with a sensational taste and amazing deserts.

It takes a long way until there for a place that explores more a touristic approach than preparing regional food. During weekends is quite crowded, families on the tables, and noisy.

I've eat at Xapuri few times, last one in march 15. I've to say that all times experience has been positive: local cuisine interpreted perfectly, meat simply fantastic. Ambient is good also for an unconventional business dinner with foreigners. This is one of my preferred places in Belo H.

It's far. It's (really) expensive. But it does worth trying. The restaurant is located beyond Pampulha, so if you are going to visit that region or even going later to a match in the soccer stadium, you can extend your visit to the restaurant. Otherwise, be prepared to go far from Savassi or Downtown. The food is excellent, very well... More

Our friends in the city recommended the Xapuri restaurant as a local cuisine. We liked the food and the ambience. I guess you should go to taste the local country food It is overpriced, a little over the average for the city.

People will there because it is situated in a house that looks like a typical farm in the state of Minas Gerais. So is for families on special occasions or business. Ok, the appearance is good. But I go the restaurant for food. It´s expensive and high fat and calorie food. Vegetarians or people on a diet stay away. As... More

This was the second time we went to Xapuri and we enjoyed both meals very much. They are located some distance away from downtown in a residential area. The place looks more like a country home than a restaurant, which adds to the character. Traditional regional food is not really sophisticated but it is hearty and delicious. Xapuri provides a...
